Kitna attended Lincoln High School (Tacoma, Washington) and was a standout in football, basketball, and baseball. He was a friend of and a prep teammate of Lawyer Milloy in football and basketball.

Kitna was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Seattle Seahawks. He had two stints with the team: one in 1996, the other in 1998. Then, in 1999, he started 15 games for the Seahawks, leading them to a 9-7 record and winning the AFC Western Division Championship.

In 2001, he signed as an unrestricted free agent with the Cincinnati Bengals.

In 2003, Kitna played every down, and was named the NFL Comeback Player of the Year after throwing for over 3,500 yards and 26 touchdown passes in leading the Bengals to a respectable 8-8 record, that team's first non-losing season since 1996.

Kitna's secondary role with the team was to prepare young quarterback Carson Palmer (the Bengals' #1 draft pick in 2003). It was a role Kitna accepted gracefully. By 2004, Palmer was ready, leading the Bengals to another 8-8 season. Kitna was the backup for Palmer in that season. The two QB's developed a close friendship off the field, particularly since both men are avid golfers.

Kitna was unexpectedly thrust back onto the football field during the Bengals' AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on January 8, 2006. Carson Palmer went down with a knee injury on his second play from scrimmage, and Kitna stepped in off the bench and into a relief role. Kitna finished 24-40 for 197 yards with 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions as the Bengals fell to the eventual Super Bowl XL champion Pittsburgh Steelers 31-17.

On March 14, 2006, Kitna was signed by the Detroit Lions as a Free agent to a 4-year contract. He was expected to compete for the starting QB position with Josh McCown.
